Ratings and Reviews
A booking isn't really a booking
I booked two taxis for the next day, one for 8.20 to take me to a meeting and one to take me to the airport later. App worked fine and both bookings accepted - so far so good. In the morning, I got a notification that the booking had been accepted, but the app didn't show any cars nearby. Eventually (2 mins overdue), a taxi showed on the map at 1 min away. Then 2 mins away. Then 5 mins away. Called Mantax and they told me that as app doesn't show destination, drivers don't accept bookings in busy times. Taxi never came. Obviously, I cancelled the later booking too. A booking is not a booking with Mantax.
This is a good taxi firm with a poor app. As already noted, drivers seem to get only limited information, it's not a "booking" with a cab but an "invitation" to drivers, and periodically the app stops working for a few days
Not sure yet
App wants you to register contact details before explaining terms and how your details might be used so clarification on this before registering would be useful. Two addresses of buildings I work from on main roads in Manchester were not recognised when I tried to add them as favourites. I tried the app because was recommended to me so really hope it's me/app error. The taxi company itself when booking over the phone have been prompt, courteous and knew where they were going.
